Great location and vibe, although noise level was a bit much. Tapas style food and lots of yummy appetizers and sushi choices, as well as more traditional meal options. Our waitperson was fabulous, and tapas and sushi were delivered when ready, not held and delivered all at once. Hubby had filet, Pittsburgh style which looked amazing. Pricing comparable to other places on A1A. Discounted validated valet parking is a bonus.

We had an amazing second date at S3! The food and the atmosphere is incredible - I loved their refreshed take on Tomato Bread! The sushi was very fresh and quite innovative - the crispy rice was a fantastic juxtaposition to the spicy tuna!

The chefs work in an open kitchen, which is a huge plus to me coming from a culinary background. Additionally, the overhead camera above the sushi chef’s station projects his prep technique to a large flat screen for all to see - truly very engaging and demonstrates the skill of the kitchen.

We will definitely be back!

Service was excellent and the food and drinks were delicious - nothing disappointed. The blondie we had for dessert was a little dry, could have been more gooey and flavorful.

Have eaten at S3 before but this time very disappointed food was not prepared well. Tempura cauliflower was soggy and dragon roll was lacking any flavors
The grouper was under cooked even though asked for well done and the sauce was thrown over the top like I was eating tomato soup

The food was delicious. The service was horrible. It is a tapas style restaurant. We got food in two groupings. Some was cold by the time we got to it. The waitress yelled at us and told us we needed to tip her more. Overall not a place I want to go back to...

The only complaint I could come up with is that the AC was not strong enough. Other than that, the food, service and ambiance was amazing. Great food!

This was a favorite at one point back some years. Seems to have slidden down quite a bit since then. For example, the roasted brussel sprouts were WAY too salty. The sushi was good... the steak, only okay. They really need to step up the food a few more notches to be considered.

One of the best brunches in Fort Lauderdale !!!!!! If you like Champagne then this is the place to be!!! Food is great, service is great and the champagne is worth the $40 for sure. They don't use the cheap stuff!!!! Looking forward to returning very soon:)

I love the ambiance at S3, we sat outside, it's across from the beach-beautiful! Everything I have ever ordered at S3 is so flavorful. A MUST is the charred edamame, and the shrimp is fabulous! Our waiter Chris was awesome & gave great suggestions. Dinner arrived timely, but wasn't rushed. S3 is a definite go to restaurant and now one of our favorites, over & over!

Everything was great until the very end when we paid our bill. The server came back to the table with a credit card reader and swiped my card at the table, made me select a tip and sign on the spot with her hovering over us. Everything was great up until this point, and she would have received a better tip if the receipts were just brought to the table. I didn’t see any other table have to pay in this manner, and it was very insulting. I will not be going back.

It was the perfect day and the perfect background for our get together. Just a few girlfriends talking over drinks and food, catching up and S3 was the best place for us to meet at. It was my first time dining there and I’ll definitely return. The view was absolutely breathtaking and the ambiance was perfect

The food was surprisingly lackluster. The chicken entree I ordered was a lot of chicken with very little flavor. A friend ordered the same entree and we both left most of it on our plates. As for dessert, I am a chocolate lover so I ordered the chocolate cake. Unfortunately, I couldn’t waste the calories on more than one bite. The chocolate cake is surprisingly bad.
